Ex-NFL player cleared in NY case involving wife

NEW YORK (AP) — Former New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Luke Petitgout (PEHT’-ih-goo) has been cleared of charges of shoving his wife out of a moving car.

The Manhattan district attorney’s office dropped the misdemeanor harassment case Tuesday. Prosecutors told a judge it couldn’t be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

Petitgout was excused from court. His lawyer, Dennis Ring, said afterward the case “should never have been brought.”

He declined to give Petitgout’s account of the Aug. 2 episode that prompted his wife to file a police report.

He was accused of hitting her with her purse and pushing her from the car.
